Studebakers on Mr. Ed...and a Falcon

We rented a DVD of the first season of Mr. Ed. For you younger folks on the list, Mr. Ed was a TV series about a talking horse (Mr. Ed) that aired back in the early '60's. In the eleventh episode, there is one scene in which Mr. Ed is getting himself a bath at a car wash and you can see a Falcon station wagon parked across the street. This is really quite remarkable since Studebaker sponsored the show, as I recall (dating myself...), and they went to great lengths to display only Studebakers in any of the scenes that included automobiles.
